Beach is clean. People are friendly and it is free! The water is cleaned, they even have dog beach. There is a fenced in area and specula area for dogs to swim in the ocean!

We typically stay in the Crest, but spent a night in the center of wildwood this past Sunday. The beach was not clean, and it’s just way too long of a walk to the water.
